Mostly speculative Deniro, i have no idea what was going on in Hunters mind in the early 70s other than his lyrical musings, but art does influence art, and artist's draw from everything in the universe.

I worked at the local book/record store in high school and Deliverance definitely increased the genre awareness of Bluegrass music, nowhere near the big seller that Neil Diamonds Jonathan Livingston Seagull was to the middle-age female clientele, however. I was eager to learn the guitar parts to the films theme song.

Garcias last performance with the New Riders was August of 1971 and he just might have caught the banjo bug again from Deliverance. Most every American film enthusiast saw both Godfather & Deliverance in 1972. Godfather opening weekend was March 24th and He's Gone first live performance was April 17th. So the timelines could probably work.

Old & In The Way first performed live March 2nd, 1973. Wake of the Flood was definitely a push into the world of Vassar Clements in 1973 for many of us.

Being a film enthusiast, on several occasions, while listening to the various actors dialogue have been reminded of songs that contained those lines as lyrics.

Oh and BTW, here's the evidence you’ve been searching for, i responded to Skobuds handle in the thread, that must be absolute proof beyond a reasonable doubt for any sane person, yes!
